This Mid-Century achievement, masterfully renovated by George Suyama in 1980, is architecture that affects the soul: transitions that soothe, compositions that evoke deep satisfaction, nuances that delight. Combined with an outstanding Madison Park location and an incredible oversized 9,520 s/f lot, this storied offering is one of the most rarefied in Seattle.
Enter the home and at once you are awash in natural light and awed by the perfect visual balance and understated elegance. Walls of glass put verdant scenes on display, expanses of stone and wood harmonize seamlessly, and a general sense of awe is palpable. Of course, the details may be transformed by your vision, with every space taking on a new, refreshed feel, but the architectural heart of the home is a stunning canvas for your customization. No matter the accoutrement, the ingenious layout, airy ambience and clever use of space - all with undeniable midcentury flair - will always shine through, enhancing every moment.
As with other Suyama works, the home is one with its natural surroundings. The reposeful composure of the design is mirrored by the peaceful end-of-the-road location, backed up against the beautiful 16th hole of Broadmoor. The purposeful thought behind every angle is matched by the careful landscaping, where mature trees and gently cascading foliage create vignettes ideal for contemplation. Yet, this is not purely landscaping as art; it is also highly functional. A concrete patio is perfect for refreshing al fresco dining, the expansive yard offers plenty of room for play, and the curb appeal of the front yard is dazzling. Entertaining on these grounds is a transcendent experience, each and every time.
All this in a superior Seattle community, long known as an enclave of tastemakers: Madison Park. Here, the gorgeous, richly finished homes of the Canterbury neighborhood are nestled along quaint, tree-lined streets. Picturesque parks and beaches dot the shores of sparkling Lake Washington, and some of Seattle’s best schools are just a short walk away. Charming, cosmopolitan dining and shopping options are abundant, and of course, the world-class offerings of downtown are just minutes beyond. This is truly a classic, prime Seattle location.
A home with such architectural provenance, located in an unquestionably premier neighborhood and sporting an astounding lot size is incredibly rare in the Seattle market. Schedule a tour now, before this midcentury masterpiece is gone.
Madison Park is a neighborhood in east central Seattle, Washington, named after the city park at the foot of E. Madison Street on the Lake Washington shore. It is bounded on the east by Lake Washington; on the south by the intersection of Lake Washington Boulevard E. and 39th Avenue E., beyond which is Denny-Blaine; on the west by Lake Washington Boulevard E.; and on the north by Union Bay. Washington Park and the private Broadmoor community and golf course are subunits within Madison Park. The neighborhood's main thoroughfares are E. Madison Street (northeast- and southwest-bound) and McGilvra Boulevard E. (north- and southbound). Madison Park in the early 1900s was a popular destination for people who lived in Downtown Seattle. Though very close to the city center, it was seen as a summer getaway, with a cable car leading over the hills to the lake, park, swimming beach and ferries to destinations across Lake Washington. Today Madison Park is an upscale residential community boasting a number of restaurants, The Attic Alehouse, McGilvra's, Madison Park Bakery, Cactus (Mexican and Southwestern food), Independent Pizza, and Bing's (American fare, family-friendly). It also has a number of shops, including Madison Hardware, Pharmaca Integrative Pharmacy, Cookin, Red Wagon Toys, The Original Children's Shop (provides kids haircuts), Madison Park Bakery, Tina's on Madison, and Bert's Red Apple Grocery.
